While most of us were barbecuing and listening to our one douchey cousin demand people “beer him” all weekend long, Demi Lovato was forced to bid farewell to her 93-year-old great-grandmother, who passed away Monday morning.
The “Stone Cold” singer shared a photo of herself beside Mimaw on Instagram yesterday, in a post dedicated to “the world's most special woman.”
The 23-year-old wrote,
I miss her more than words can even describe. There is an emptiness in my heart that only her spirit can fill and I pray that I will feel her by my side every single day until we meet again. I attribute my strength to her… She was my great-grandmother but we were so close that I never knew it was possible that anyone could have the bond that we shared even 70 years a part [sic]… The pain I feel is almost unbearable but because of her strength I will power through it.
Demi also shared a collage on Insta of Mimaw pics, including many of the pair holding hands.
She captioned the photo with a single broken heart emoji.
She thanked Lovatics for their love, prayers and fan art, claiming their support “has been empowering and so special.”
Fans and fellow celebs reached out to the singer on Twitter to express their condolences.
